CONFIRMED - Frozen single release to International Radio.We respectfully request that everyone in M's International fan base call into their local radio stations to request Frozen.  COOL FACT: Warner Music France serviced the single to radio in an ice cream container along with real ice cream. (Because radio programmers get a gazillion CDs and requests to review and add songs to their radio play lists, record companies sometimes conjure up clever ways of packaging and presenting songs so they don’t get lost in the shuffle and forgotten amongst the mountains of submitted music.)

NEW!! 5/2/98 Madonna's new single, Frozen, has shot to the Number. 2 spot on Australian radio's top 30. These charts are based on most requested songs. **If you have any similar chart action available(from your home country), I will gladly post it right here. Just e-mail me the info. Cheers!
